Fire, Stone, Ice and Silk: The Amongst the Sheets ‘Andromeda’ Collection

Every single after in awhile, and I do mean on very rare occasions, I run across a collection that I want I could hold secret. I really feel so spellbound, so mesmerized, that trying to commit my sentiments to paper (or WordPress) seems nearly sacrilegious. There’s a power in secrets, in issues hidden from sight and known only to a pick couple of.  In an era when most brands are clamoring for interest, Amongst the Sheets has gone in really the opposite direction, releasing a new collection that’s elusive, mysterious, and utterly sublime.

Andromeda, Amongst the Sheets’ first bespoke collection, draws on myth and legend to explore concepts like enjoy, sacrifice, strength and energy via the medium of lingerie. The lookbook, shot on the unreal beaches and vistas of Iceland, perfectly conveys that tension in between strength and malleability, a tension reflected in the composition of the pieces themselves, a brilliantly creative fusion of soft, diaphanous silk and tulle with brass, copper, Swarovski crystal, and cord. This collection is beautiful, yes, but it is also thoughtful, philosophical even, nudging gently at the concept of what lingerie can be. By reimagining the myth of Andromeda, designer Layla L’obatti also reimagines womanhood and femininity, especially the contrast among one’s outer presentation and inner self.

As opposed to the primary Among the Sheets line, Andromeda is not a collection developed with the intent to mass generate. Each piece is made to order, bespoke, cost-free from mundane concerns such as hanger appeal and storage. It’s beauty for beauty’s sake, and these interested in ordering from the Andromeda collection can make contact with the brand directly (information@btslingerie.com) for prices and solution information.

What do you believe of Among the Sheets’ new collection? Would you put on something from their debut bespoke variety?

It’s the first couple of days of summer season, which signifies it’s time to think about packing for vacation. And even if your trip this year is much more a “staycation,” new lingerie can assist inject a sense of vitality and joie de vivre into even the most mundane of schedules.

Only a few months following the wild accomplishment of their first spring bra collection, Yandy is back at it once more with a brand new summer variety. Featuring fresh, seasonal hues like peach, Aruba blue, cotton candy pink, and melon, the Summer 2016 Everyday Sexy Bra Collection expands on Yandy’s commitment to a wide assortment of lingerie at budget-friendly prices.

Just as ahead of, bras are priced at $ 15.95 each and every or three for $ 33. Yandy has also added bralettes, the lingerie trend of the year, to this season’s collection, and thoes are priced at $ 12.95 each or 2 for $ 20. Yandy’s size variety for their underwire bras is 34A-38D, although the size range for each bralettes and knickers is S-L.

I’m personally a fan of the Below the Sun Beige Longline Bra. What a beautiful lace, and a excellent take on a color most men and women perceive as “boring.” I have a feeling their Nothing at all to It White Bralette will make an look in my lingerie drawer quickly as well.

Introducing Amathia, My New Lingerie Collection

Author: Estelle

As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve just finished my newest in-home collection for Esty Lingerie, Amathia, which launched on Sunday. I intentionally almost never ever talk about my own styles on this weblog (due to the fact who wants to hear me rave about items I’ve made myself?) but I’m rather content with this new collection and wanted to show it off, so I hope you will forgive me this a single indulgence. :)

Apologies in advance if this post is a bit far more of a ramble than usual. I just believed I’d talk a little about my inspiration and design procedure for anybody who’s interested.

You may well recognise this lace from my prior collection, Glimmer – it’s the same except for the colour. I have a enjoy-hate relationship with it because its greatest feature is its sparkliness, but I can by no means seem to get that glorious shimmer to show up in photographs (which are somewhat essential when you sell exclusively online!). Mostly though, I really like it – it is beautiful, it’s straightforward to function with, and it is not crazy pricey meaning I can preserve my prices fairly affordable, which has constantly been essential to me.

I pretty a lot constantly get my inspiration for a collection from its components, so that was my starting point. Initially, I’d hoped to use the lace in a gorgeous white and mint, which I employed to make this one-off pair of tap pants, but sadly there wasn’t enough available so white and lime it was.

With the lace’s shimmering metallic thread and scalloped edging, I was reminded of irridescent osyters and clamshells and a theme began to take shape. I managed to locate some awesome small pearl-in-shell charms, plus gold starfish to match with the gold-plated hardware utilized on the strapping.

The strapping, like the lime-accented lace, was an additional unplanned colour choice. I debated between white and green elastic and at some point decided the green would appear very best, despite getting pricier – if you want a little reel of satin elastic in any colour other than black or white the price jumps by about 500%! However it was dyed-to-order and arrived significantly brighter than anticipated, but as it came from the States returning it was a cost and a lengthy wait I didn’t require, so I just decided to run with it. After all, I’m constantly complaining there is not adequate green lingerie out there!

In terms of styles, you’ll recognise the triple-strapped garter from prior collections. Like my triple choker straps, it is turn out to be a bit of a signature style and one thing that often sells nicely for me. The Amathia tap pants are also extremely comparable to the preceding Glimmer ones, but as nicely as adding slit sides (inspired by my beautiful Ann Summers Clarissa shorts) I’ve produced some considerable modifications to the pattern to improve the match.

For these who don’t know, I do not come from a sewing or fashion background. When I launched Esty Lingerie in 2009, I didn’t even have a sewing machine! Early on I outsourced most of the production of my concepts to freelance seamstresses in the UK, but more than the years I’ve taken it on bit by bit, very first adding some finishing touches by hand, then generating a few of the easier pieces myself, and as of my Beloved and Glimmer collections (not Pivoine in between) doing almost everything myself.

Partly this shift has been because I haven’t always been happy with the good quality of the work I’ve outsourced. Partly it is a cost factor, since the much more I can do myself the reduce my retail rates and/or the more profit I make per piece. Largely even though, it’s due to the fact I’d found I actually, genuinely appreciate sewing!

Amathia marks the 1st collection where I’ve incorporated a bra I’ve created myself. Yes, it’s a bralette, but studying to sew a wired bra is certainly on my to-do list – most likely subsequent year even though, these pesky small items are up there with corsets and shoes as some of the most complicated and difficult garments to generate!

Amathia bralette, £42.99

This is also the explanation the size variety for the Amathia bralette is really limited, with 3 sizes fitting 30-40 band sizes and a really narrow spread of cup sizes. Grading patterns and sewing are two different talent sets, and I have significantly less knowledge with the initial, but introducing numbered sizing rather than S/M/L is my purpose for my next collection.

So, just a single last issue – why Amathia? As a sealife-inspired collection my thoughts initially turned to mermaids, or sirenas in Spanish. I stock the Kiss Me Deadly Sirena range and the Dentelle etc… Siren variety even though, and didn’t want to trigger any confusion. So I began looking via the names of nereids – sea nymphs in Greek mythology – and just rather liked the name of the small-recognized Amatheia, a nereid with “lovely hair” who raised all the young fish of the sea!

You can shop the Amathia variety right here, with prices ranging from £17.99 to £42.99. I’d really like to know what you believe of it, and what you’d like to see more of from me in the future!
